Starters & Snacks
INDIAN STARTERS AND SNACKS are extremely popular because they allow you to sample a variety of tastes, ranging from moderately spiced chickpea-based starters to cottage cheese-based treats, as well as a host of other specialties. They are an excellent accompaniment to alcoholic beverages and other drinks.
Most Indians always order a starter or snack to begin with, or to accompany their main dish - without it the lunch or dinner isn’t considered complete.
Indian Starters and Snacks are a good place to begin sampling the many flavors of Indian food.
